Something extraordinary has happened outside the magical world of Harry Potter! Ginny Weasley, the tiny, lively girl we watched on Platform 9 ¾, has grown into a woman and become a mum! Bonnie Wright, the actress who portrayed Ginny, announced on social media that she had given birth to her first child.
Lifeway Bonnie Wright can be described as the Hogwarts to Hollywood line, but it’s a journey full of talent and activism. But the truth is that while most child stars have become more beautiful, this is not the case with Ginny aka Bonnie. See for yourself how she navigated motherhood in her thirties:
Way out of the movie
Bonnie Francesca Wright, born on February 17, 1991 in London’s Tower Hamlets district, has become synonymous with talent, passion and activism. Best known for her iconic role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter film series, she has crossed over from acting to filmmaking, environmental activism and literature.
Her journey through the entertainment industry began at the age of nine when she made her film debut in 2001 Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Little did the world know that this young actress would grow up to be a versatile artist and a prominent environmental advocate.
After ten years in the role of Ginny Weasley, Wright spread her wings beyond the wizarding world of Hogwarts. She immersed herself in the world of independent cinema and her performances, though sometimes underappreciated, showed her versatility and dedication to the craft.

Alone behind the camera
However, Wright did not stop there. In 2012, after graduating from the London College of Communication with a BA in Filmmaking, she founded her own production company, BonBonLumiere. Through this venture, she explored her passion for storytelling and directing, creating several critically acclaimed short films.
One of her notable directorial ventures was a coming-of-age drama Separately we come, separately we leave (2012), which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and established her as an up-and-coming director. Wright then continued to hone her skills in films that reflect her unique perspective and artistic sensibilities.

Many other activities
In addition to film activities, Wright also ventured into the world of literature. In April 2022, she published a book on the importance of environmental protection. Bonnie is a staunch environmental activist, raising awareness of plastic pollution and promoting sustainable practices. Her commitment to Greenpeace, visits to sustainable forest management communities and support of the Rainforest Alliance underline her commitment to preserving the environment for future generations.
In addition to her activism, Wright is also an ambassador for Lumos, a children’s organization founded by JK Rowling. Her dedication to philanthropy and charitable work underscores her compassionate nature and desire to positively impact the world.
